Alliance President Bob Wise and Open Education Solutions CEO Tom Vander Ark continue Digital Learning Now!’s (DLN) video series outlining the “10 Elements of High-Quality Digital Learning.”

Today’s video focuses on Element #7: “Providers,” which says that in order to maximize the potential of digital learning, states must provide a rich offering of providers that can cater to the diverse and distinctly unique needs of different students. States should set common-sense standards for entry, have a strong system of oversight and quality control, and foster a robust competitive environment where students can choose the provider who best meets their learning needs. Unnecessary administrative requirements, such as having a brick and mortar office in the district or state, create obstacles that prevent high quality providers from participating.
